Abstract:

Towing tank experiments were conducted with a number of strut-mounted hydrofoil configurations to determine possible methods of increasing hydrofoil lift-to-drag ratios LD and reducing lift at high speeds to those equivalent values at lower hydrofoil takeoff speeds. Methods used included ventilation, varying aspect ratio, and the addition of foil end plates, spoilers, and flaps.
